ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) is the primary energy carrier in all living organisms, which captures, and store energy metabolized from food and light sources in the form of ATP.
ATP fulfils one part of the IMPROVE step of our Remove, Improve, Protect process against infectious diseases, viruses or bacteria.
Since ATP is present in all living and active microbial cells, it is a great indicator of overall microbiological content in fluids or deposits. Through a chemical reaction, ATP reacts with luciferase, which produces light. The amount of light can be quantified, and the amount of ATP present can then be calculated instantly.
Standard sanitation monitoring methods often require culturing microbes on media and waiting for them to reproduce and form visible colonies. It takes days or weeks to obtain results depending on the species, and these methods only capture <1% of the total population present. By measuring ATP before and after cleaning, can help you identify any areas that haven’t been clean effectively.
